The Accommodation Team is responsible for the allocation of rooms within the University's halls of residence and supporting students living in the private sector through our Daily Vacancy List and drop-in information and advice service. We also provide a housing management service for returning students.
- When do accommodation fees have to be paid?
In the 2012/13 academic year, hall fees are payable in full in November 2012. Payment can be made by credit/debit card, cash, cheque, banker's draft or bank transfer into Kingston University's bank account.
Alternatively students can pay by three instalments by direct debit via a UK bank account on:
- 8 November 2012 (16 weeks' rent)
- 10 January 2013 (16 weeks' rent)
- 18 April 2013 (8 weeks' rent)
The above instalments are based on a standard 40-week licence. Some courses vary in length, which may alter the number of weeks in each instalment.
The contract for students who chose to live in iQ Wave halls is 50 weeks and has an instalment plan as follows:
- 8 November 2012 (20 weeks' rent)
- 10 January 2013 (20 weeks' rent)
- 18 April 2013 (10 weeks' rent)
International students who do not have a UK bank account have the option of paying by instalment through pre-arranged debit or credit card payments. They will need to request an 'International Hall Rent Payment Form' from the Accommodation Team. If they decide to cancel this arrangement, they will be expected to pay their remaining accommodation fees on cancellation.

- What is security like in halls of residence?
Student safety in halls is important, and every resident shares a responsibility for security in their hall. The University has a 24-hour security service, and staff are there to help students out of office hours. When students take up their place in halls they will be given information on how to contact security. There is the added protection of CCTV across all our halls and campuses.
